dear coffee

I've got one more project for the Summer Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop.
 I made this bookmark for all the summer reading I plan to do.

I stamped the girl image from the dream of being set from Unity. I then watercolored around her in bright summery colors. Added a little black splatter. I stamped the sentiment from this set onto black cardstock and cut it into strips. Then some colorful twine to top it off.. 

I just love this sentiment!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!

Coffee Lovers

It's time for the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! It actually started last Friday and today is the last day of the week-long hop.

My camera battery died and I can't find the charger. I've been hoping it would turn up all week so I could post this card. But it didn't. So I was stuck using my phone on a cloudy day to photograph. Sigh.

Anyway, here is my card:

I stamped this fun image from Unity and watercolored her. Layered it on top of bright summer colors. She was fun to color. I can't wait to make up ome more! 

So go check out the hop. Lots of prizes (you can still link up a project through today) and many of the sponsors are giving away prizes on their blog as well.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!

many thanks

Over at The Paper Girls, Michele has challenged us to use up our scraps.
Here is the card I came up with:

I only let myself use scrapsthat were already out on my desk.
I had stamped and colored the flower for a previous card but it was off-center and I had to re-stamp it. But "the mistake" was still on my desk so I trimmed it a bit and added black splatter.

The sentiment was from a stamp set sitting on my desk. I had this yellow card base I had cut for another card but ended up not liking the color. So I used it for this. I just added some leftover patterned paper from my desk as well as black washi tape.

Thanks for stopping by and come join in on the scraps challenge!
